Exciting times

Hi guys! I'm transitioning to my new blog, so head over to my new site slow sweet to follow me there, as I won't keep updating this one. Anyway, I have an exciting announcement to share...

I don't know if you guys follow the indie pattern company Muse patterns, but I've been quietly working away on a little collaboration!



I'm excited to announce Mānuka, my first pattern released as a guest designer for Muse patterns!

New post on new blog!

Hello!
I've finally gone and started my new blog, so please check it out and follow me there :)

slowsweetblog.com

I decided it was time for a change and (hopefully) an upgrade.

Here's a sneaky peek of my first blog post. It's been ages since I've shared a garment so I'm glad
to get back to it :)
Wait until you see the straps on the back!

Please let me know if you have any issues, questions or tips about moving blogs! I've never done it before so it's all new to me!

Where I've been

Hello!

The reason I haven't been around on here much lately is that I've been finishing up my final year at university. It's been a rough year to be honest, with a lot of stress and ill health, but I made it through! I'm really looking forward to getting back to a more balanced lifestyle :)
For those of you who don't know, I've been busy getting a Bachelor of Design majoring in fashion! It's been an intense four years but I've learned so much.

I view my study as a transitional phase for me. This blog was started after I got well from severe, crippling CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) and definitely represented a journey of figuring out who I was after years of living in a broken body. I am so proud to have moved forward since that time. I have gradually built my self esteem and sense of self back up and achieved my goal of 'feeling like a normal person'. It's been a hard road but it's leading somewhere good!

Now I'm looking forward to the future and more steps of finding my place in the world. One of the biggest impacts my study on me had was the research I did about sustainability and the impact of our consumption on our world. This is something I think most of us are aware of, but when you really look at the facts, you can't ignore how serious it is! I'm planning to share more about this in the future. :)

I am planning to keep blogging but I will shift to a new blog address in future, as I feel it's time for a fresh start. I'm also planning to share some of the work I have done so you can see some of what I've been so busy with!

In the next little while I'll share my work and hopefully get my new blog up and running soon :)
See you soon!
